Gritty dishes My dishes are coming out of the wash gritty. It is as if food has been dried on them. As if the rinse water has particles in it and then they are left on every dish. I have used a dishwasher cleaner several times and I also use the rinse agent in the machine. Nothing is helping. It is getting worse.The inside of the dishwasher. mostly on the top, usually has food residue all over it at the end of every wash. Even the machine is dirty. I'm hand washing everything right now.

My dishwasher skips the final drain cycle. The lines are all clean and there is no clog. It drains just fine in the beginning of the wash cycle. Every time I do a load of dishes I have to run the full cycle, then leave the machine open for 3-4 hours and start the cycle again and listen for the drain at the beginning of the wash to drain the machine from the initial wash and stop the machine after it is done draining so it won't fill up again. Sometimes we have to unplug it and wait about an hour

I have a Bosch dishwasher model SHE4AP02UC/06, serial number FD901102579 that has been used twice since installation. When I select the Regular Wash cycle, the Regular Wash LED and the Active LED come on. The machine washes the dishes and then when it stops making noise. At that point the Active LED goes off and the Clean LED comes on with the Regular Wash LED. These LED's do not go off. There is no signal saying that the dishwasher is finished. Is this the way it is supposed to be operating or

Hi, we have a Neff dishwasher and noticed a couple of days ago that it took hours longer than usual for the dishwasher to complete its cycle. Last night after the machine had been on for about 4 hours we checked and although there was some water at the bottom of the machine it had not started to wash the dishes although we had heard noises coming from the machine. On opening the integrated door notice that the "check water supply" indicator was lit up. Do you have any suggestions as to what

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher doesn't wash dishes properly. I think that it is not getting enough water in the machine. It only allows about an inch of water to get into machine and then starts. I do not think that there is enough water to spin wash arms. I have 40 PSI coming into the house. I am on well water and found debris in the intake orfice. I did my best to flush. Could it still be bad?

Our dishwasher seems to be stuck in drain mode. My daughter put the wrong kind of soap in it. She accidently put Regular dish washing soap in rather than machine dish washing soap. We've got all the suds out. Seems to drain water just fine. However we cant seem to get it to add water. Does the soap have anything to do with it? Anything I can do from my end? Please Advise. Thanks

I am using the same quality products to wash the dishes as I have done in the past when I used this machine effectively but now--it doesn't seem to clean the dishes and leaves a film and food residue. My dishwasher is a KitchenAid Architect S Series II machine.


Dishwashers have a part usually called a separator or accumulator which traps the dirt from the water during the wash cycles while the water is continuously recycled to clean the dishes.

Depending on your dishwasher, it fills either by a timer or by a water probe or float. I will assume its a timer as a probe or float wouldnt exhibit this behaviour. I would say you have a restriction in your water supply line. Check your valves, an ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

There is always condensation on the inside of the door and some water on the floor of the machine after washing. The main thing is the foul odor that is inside the machine after a day of sitting with dishes in it. I have checked for obstructions and there are none visible and I have washed the little basket. Nothing advised in the manuel seems to help, although the odor problem is not mentioned in the manuel. I HATE THIS DISHWASHER! I wish I had my former, much less expensive Maytag back.

I have an Ariston LS245 dishwasher, have just had the pump replaced, as it had shorted out, due to water in the bottom tray where the water detection float is, also a new drain hose fitted. Have just run a wash and after running a while, presumably to the end of the rinse, wash and dry cycle, then one of the cycle phase lights, the one for 'soak' blinks constantly. I switched the machine off and had a look to see if a wash had been done, the dishes look clean. In the book it says that if one

Dish-washer My dishwasher is not draining all of the water out of the dishwasher after it washes.

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher SHU43C02uc/22 about 4 years ago. Recently during the last 2 washes, the machine has been giving off a smell like hot rubber during the wash cycle. It otherwise runs perfectly (dishes are clean, drains okay, etc). I have done just the routine maintenance like checking for large pieces of food but have found nothing so far. Any suggestions as to where I should look for where the smell might be coming from?

Our whirlpool dishwash is not cleaning the dishes very well so I pulled it out from the wall and un hooked the electrical and the water lines. After looking at it I hooked everything back together and I have no electricity or power to my washing machine. Is there a reset button or something on the dishwasher that I need to push?


I've installed many DW's and haven't seen a reset on one. Take in mind, not saying that they're couldn't be one, but I doubt it IMHO. I've been installing all appliances proffessionally for 10 years and it just doesn't seem like there could be one. ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

My kenmore washing machine fills with water but will not wash..it sounds like its doing something then it stops after a while i hear it drain and then stops again..water doesnt spray..I let the dishwasher run for a while but dishes werent even wet


Often these work by reversing the motor which has two pump impellers. One direction will pump the water out and the other will pump it through the spray bar. IF the one pump impeller has broken then that would explain your symptoms. \015\012 ... Kenmore 24 in. 16193 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
